Location: Tiger Mountain Vineyards
Time: 6pm
Join us for an unparalleled culinary adventure in the lush north Georgia mountains. The second dinner of the series will be prepared by two award winning Atlanta chefs, using locally grown ingredients, and served in the infamous “party barn” at Tiger Mountain Vineyards near Clayton, GA. Husband and wife Chefs Joe Truex and Mihoko Obunai, chef/owners of re’past Restaurant in Atlanta will be guest chefs for this incredible adventure hosted by Leckie and Bill Stack on the gorgeous grounds of their lovely “piece of paradise” in north Georgia. Overlooking a theatre of vineyards and fruit orchards, with the peak of Tiger Mountain as the backdrop, you will not find a lovelier setting for an event. This will be an experience to remember, but you will have to make a difficult decision, as we have designed a “choose your own adventure” format.  Arrive at 5:30pm for walking tour of the vineyard and orchards with owners Bill and Leckie Stack, followed by an intimate dinner paired with fabulous reserve wines in the barn. The wine pairings will explore the inspiring cousins to the north Georgia vines. Side by side, we will drink old world malbec next to the malbec of Rabun County. Dine with the chefs and the farmers in an intimate setting ten feet from the kitchen. The cost of the 5-course dinner, with wine pairings is $150, including tax and gratuity.
